You probably clicked on this page because you’re knee deep in researching your perfect essential oil brand. I know how overwhelming it can be. With the resurgence of natural remedies, the essential oils market is booming. And with so many new companies and brands popping up, it’s hard to know which one to go with.
So maybe you’ve found yourself here because you’ve heard of It Works! essential oils. In this blog post, I’m going to give you an objective review and rating of It Works! essential oils on a scale of A+-F based on price, quality, and selection.
But before we get into it, there are a couple things we need to nail down. First and foremost being, what are your goals for essential oils? Are you looking to make a lifestyle out of them or are you interested in making your home smell inviting and your laundry smell lovely?
Now there is a huge difference here. If you want to use essential oils for their aromatherapy and therapeutic benefits, then you need a high quality brand that you can rely on. A company that is going to have resource centers for all your questions and concerns. A company that goes above and beyond on testing and is transparent with it! Now… if all you want to do is whip up some DIY cleaning recipes then a not-so-pure, less expensive brand is not the worst idea for you or your wallet.
By the end of this article, you should know if It Works! is the perfect brand for you. Now that you have your goal in mind, let’s jump in.
The Basics: Who is It Works!
You may have heard of It Works! before if you have a friend who sells their body wraps. This is a network marketing company that sells a large variety of health and wellness products including essential oils.
They have products for beauty, nutrition, keto, vegan, energy, and weight loss.
The It Works! oils have a very different pricing structure than our other essential oils brands. Remember It Works! is not a regular retailer, they are a network marketing company, which typically means you need to sign up to become a member or pay a higher price for their products. The only way to become a member is to order a business builders kit for $99 and also implies that joining means that you’re also promoting the products and “doing the business.”
It’s also difficult to give you an accurate price comparison since the It Works! essential oils have an incredibly small selection – there’s no frankincense or peppermint. We only have the Lavender to compare:
$39.00 15mL retail
$23.00 15 mL with membership
You will see their membership price still falls a little on the higher side, and their retail price (without signing up) is very, very high.
The It Works! essential oils collection is ny. For singles you can choose lavender, tea tree, lemon, or eucalyptus. Then they offer four blends for energy, relaxation, defense, and focus. That’s it. It’s definitely not the ideal option for somebody who wants to use essential oils for multiple areas of their life. Perhaps it would work for anyone who is normally overwhelmed by lots of oil options but even still, you have to pay the hefty members’ fee to get the oils at a decent price.
It Works! says their essential oils go through a five-step testing process, including GC-MS and refrac ve index. They also share the extraction method for each oil, as well as their botanical name – both are good quality indicators. However, they only say their oils are sourced “from crops grown around the world in countries where the climate and soil are best for them.” This lack of specific information is not very helpful and raises some red flags.
It Works! Rating
Bottom Line: The It Works! oils are just really, really expensive – and their selection is so small it’s nearly impossible to use them therapeutically (beyond general aromatherapy for some mood boosting). If you are already a member of It Works! maybe it would make sense to use and order their oils. Otherwise, you can find premium essential oils with much clearer quality ratings for less money.
